Chichibu Imamiya-jinja Shrine秩父今宮神社

Shrine

A Shinto shrine located in Naka-machi, Chichibu City. One of Japan's oldest shrines, since ancient times it has been dedicated to a water god embodied by a miraculous spring welling up from under Mt. Buko. Until the distant Nara period, the shrine was also dedicated to other deities such as the Eight Dragon Kings. In 1535, a portion of the spirit of Susanoo-no-Okami from Imamiya-jinja Shrine in Kyoto was ritually transferred to this shrine when an epidemic raged in the region. The grounds encompass Ryujin Pond, the oldest spring in Chichibu, as well as a huge tree called the Ryujinboku which is over 1,000 years old.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
